Little Feet

There’s something about little feet. When it’s baby feet, just the little toes can set you off. Then you put the little feet in cute little shoes. Then you put the little feet in little-sized adult-type shoes, like these little bowlers.

But then they grow up to be teenager feet and maybe start smelling a little bit. I think I prefer the little feet.

Back against the wall

I found another great wall in the downtown Fayetteville area. My girls have always been willing subjects, and you can tell my youngest was striking a pose.

On another note, I have ten more days of the year-long challenge! I started on 01 Feb 2016 editing a picture a day. In some ways it has flown by. At the end of each month it starts to drag because I feel like I’m running out of material to edit. You can read about the challenge here: Project Edit 365: About.

On our walk around the town, we made it to the downtown area. The buildings, walls, streets–everything had such character. I came across this exterior wall and I love everything that is going on. The window has Christmas pine still decorating it. There’s a chain hanging from them. Perhaps it’s securing the two chairs, I don’t remember. My favorite thing is the wood on the door. Check everything out:

Reflection

When we lived in North Carolina, I went out with a photographer friend to shoot around our town. Being in the middle of the week, my kids came along. It was a chilly and overcast day and we were walking around a more industrial part of town. Leave it to kids to find something to play with no matter where they are, and that’s a good thing!

It’s written on her face

This one wears her emotions on her sleeve, so to speak. Take a look at her face, her body, her demeanor, and you’ll know exactly how she’s feeling. I know God will use her passionate personality for amazing things, but right now we’re just getting her to understand how to respond properly to her angry and frustrated emotions. She has a very sweet heart, though, which is the perfect complement to the thin skin.

Overview of Carmel and Point Lobos

It’s almost always hiking weather in Monterey, California. There’s a nice park there called Jack’s Peak that you reach by driving up a small mountain. The views from the park are magnificent. You have to walk through the forest to get to various vistas, but you get almost a 360 degree view of the surrounding lands: Monterey Bay, Salinas, Carmel Valley, and Carmel towards the Pacific Ocean.

This shot is looking southeast, over Carmel and towards Point Lobos, another beautiful hiking spot. It’s maybe a 5.5 mile distance as the crow flies (using this handy tool, because I’m terrible at distances). Everything is close by in the Monterey area.

Seeing this really makes me want to go back. We were only there for nine months. Enough to capture a little piece of my heart.
